Trouble installing DD-WRT

I'm having trouble installing DD-WRT.  I'm trying to flash a brand new 614L using the netgear router upgrade ui and the .chk file that I downloaded from the myopenrouter site.  I'm getting an error saying "Invalid filename was provided. Please enter again."   I'm pretty sure its the correct filename, but no luck.  Hope someone can help me.  Thanks!

I've looked at the underside and confirmed that it is indeed a WGR614 v8.

Are you using the europian

Are you using the europian verions of 614L? The Europian version uses a different bootloader version. Nachi has already released Tomato for the Europian verion of h/w (http://www.myopenrouter.com/download/10413/tomato_wgr614l-lzma/) - you need to try this version.

Good Luck.

I'll give it a try tonight.

I'll give it a try tonight. However, I bought the router from amazon here in the States, so I assume its the US version.

Tried the European Tomato

Tried the European Tomato version but didn't work. I even tried uploading a netgear firmware for the 614 v8 and that didn't work, so something was definitely wrong. I solved all of my problems by using IE to update instead of Firefox. So now, I'm dd-wrt on my router with no problems. Thanks for everyone's help.

Is your power LED and wireless LED lighting up?  Also, is your check LED and internet LED in constant amber color?

I had the same problem when

I had the same problem when going from the WGR614L original firmware to DD-WRT v24-9281 and solved it by using IE (which I got from this thread), but now I've tried to update to Tomato with no luck (neither IE nor FF). I'm going to attempt to upgrade to DD-WRT v24 SP1 sometime today. I hope it works!

BTW: What does WW and NA stand for?

The only problem is that this isn't really a reasonable solution for people that don't have a current version of IE. IE is a browser that runs on a single platform and not everyone is using that platform.
